FAQ about hiring accident lawyers in Dacorum for slips & falls
Unfortunately slips, trips and falls, are the most common types of personal injury incidents. From slipping on an unmarked wet floor to tripping over a broken pavement, they can occur in many different ways. If you have been involved in a similar situation, read on to discover the answers to the questions you are most likely pondering over.
- How do I know if I should make a claim? The first step is always determining whether you should hire accident lawyers in Dacorum to begin with. In order to make a successful claim you will need to be able to prove that someone else is responsible for the incident in question and thus the suffering you have experienced. You certainly will not be able to make a claim if you are responsible for the accident.
- Will I have to go to court? A lot of people worry about a lengthy and complicated trial. Whilst we cannot say for sure that you and your accident lawyers in Dacorum won’t have to go to court, it is extremely unlikely. Less than three per cent of personal injury claims result in a trial, with most being handled over the phone. It is in the interest of all parties to have a quick and smooth resolve.
- What payment options are available to me? There are various ways you can pay your solicitor. At Accident Advice Helpline, we have lawyers all over the UK, not just accident lawyers in Dacorum, and all of our lawyers work on a no win no fee* basis. This is definitely the most beneficial option. It eliminates financial risk, as you will not need to pay any legal fees if your case is not successful. Aside from this, you do not need to make a huge initial payment to begin the claim process. This ensures you benefit from a better service and that you don’t fall victim to a lawyer who is simply trying to take your money irrespective of the outcome of the case.
- Can I make a claim years after the accident? There is actually a time limit on almost all personal injury cases. This limit is three years, meaning you will have three years from the date of the slip, trip or fall to make your claim. Please be aware that court proceedings have to be issued within this time period.
